Rahul rides a bike in Goa, wears a helmet, puts on a mask and hits the streets on a motorcycle; talked to the fishermen

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi started his election campaign in a way in Goa on Saturday. Former Congress President Rahul took a motorcycle from Bembolim to reach Azad Maidan in Panaji, where he offered flowers at the memorial of freedom fighters.

The video of this bike ride of Rahul, wearing a helmet and wearing a mask, has been tweeted by the Congress, which is going viral on social media. During this, Rahul targeted the central government over the rising prices of petrol and diesel. Rahul Gandhi also met the fishermen and assured them of solving their problems if Congress comes to power.

Bike taxi exercise to woo common voter
Rahul Gandhi used ‘Pilot Seva’, which is a common man’s motorcycle taxi service in Goa and very popular, to reach Azad Maidan. This decision of Rahul to go back on his motorcycle is being considered as part of an exercise to woo the common voter. The current term of the Goa Legislative Assembly is ending in early 2022 and all the parties have started trying to woo the common voters in their favour.

Hands on the pulse of voters kept by high oil prices
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi tried to keep his hand on the pulse of the common man regarding the rising oil prices. Rahul said that when the UPA government was in power, the international price of crude oil had reached $140 per barrel. Despite this, we did not allow petrol and diesel to become expensive. Today the international price of petrol and diesel is much less than the time of our rule, but you have to pay a lot for petrol and diesel. Today India imposes the highest tax on petrol in the world. If you look carefully, only 4-5 businessmen are getting its benefit.

Goa will not be allowed to become a coal hub
During his meeting with fishermen in Velasava, Rahul promised not to allow Goa to become a ‘coal hub’. Rahul Gandhi, MP from Wayanad seat in neighboring Kerala, told the fishermen, we will not allow Goa to become a polluted state. The most important thing is Goa’s environment and it will be protected at any cost. We will save the environment for everyone.

Congress manifesto is ‘guarantee’ not ‘promise’
Targeting the BJP government at the Center and the state, Rahul accused them of not fulfilling their election promises. Rahul said that the manifesto of the Congress is a ‘guarantee’. It does not consist of mere “promises” like the others. The party is coming out with a manifesto, which is completely transparent. We fought elections in Chhattisgarh and promised to waive off farmers’ loans. We did this. You can verify this by going to Punjab and Karnataka also.
